Q&A: What does the Hebrew phrase “yeshua ben yahweh” mean?

It means “Jesus son of [the Lord’s Name]”—but only someone seeking to convert Jews to Christianity would think of uttering or writing such an expression, since Jews are forbidden from saying or writing the Lord’s name, and the idea of anyone literally being the son of God is a sacrilegious notion.
